A bowl of oats a day keeps the doctor away… Am I right!?! BUT, and thats a big but, I couldn’t think of anything worse in these summer months than a steaming hot bowl of oats, cue chilled overnight oats. Chilled overnight oats are exactly what it says on the tin, they are oats that you make up and leave overnight in the fridge and in the morning you are welcomed by a delightful creamy bowl of goodness!.
This is a very basic but versatile recipe of which you can tweak to make your own. For example I like my oats quite thick so If you like slightly runnier oats then just add more liquid. And these by no means have to be protein oats, just remove protein powder all together and again add a little less liquid. The best thing about this recipe is there are so many flavour concoctions to try, so get creative and let me know the flavours you put together.
Serves: 2 (Or if you’re like me, a greedy 1 😉 )
100g 0% Fat Greek Yoghurt
10g Chia Seeds
250ml Almond Milk (or a milk of your choice)
1 Scoop of Protein Powder (I use PEScience Select)
This will be my simplest methods section yet. Add all the ingredients to a container and mix till everything is combined. Place in the fridge overnight and then add toppings of your choice. Nut butters and berries are my favourites!
